The Girl on the Page
'In The Girl on the Page, John Purcell triumphs with a scalpel in one hand and his heart in the other. It is a gripping, dark comedy of a novel which eviscerates the cynicism of contemporary publishing while uttering a cri du coeur for what is happening to writers and
readers this century.
Through this black comedy - I squealed with laughter, page after page - flash questions about cultural life that Purcell asks but leaves us to ponder.'
